Social Media Has Altered The Paths To Fame.

Proof Positive!

New channels of breaking through ancient barriers are constantly being discovered. Anyone who has ever aspired to attain superiority in a particular craft or at need only follow the pathways revealed by examples such as Kate Upton, who didn't have to go nude to spread across the web!

Sure, going VIRAL is part of the whole; it is NOT the whole.

Yes, follow the examples set by Nicki and Christina.

Sports Illustrated's announcement that Ms. Upton will grace the cover of the Swimsuit Issue is renewing talk that shapely could replace the waifish look of runway models.

Hey, if the internet can singlehandedly vanquish the US Postal Service and the American Newspaper Industry, the sky's the limit!

(I know - vanquishment has not reached 100% - but the meter is running!)

  1. Now that stardom can be had via do-it-yourself internet activity it becomes more of what the people want, not what some corporation decides is art!

  5. So glad to see a well-fed woman with a non-siliconed human body make good. Why are women with implants ever considered desirable?

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
